Battery time is not estimated on an Acer TravelMate 290.

Additional info:

Steps to reproduce:
When running acpi, I get the following messages (depending on AC state, even at 100%):
Battery 0: Discharging, 79%, discharging at zero rate - will never fully discharge.
Battery 0: Charging, 78%, charging at zero rate - will never fully charge.

acpi -V
Battery 0: Charging, 81%, charging at zero rate - will never fully charge.
Battery 0: design capacity 4000 mAh, last full capacity 4000 mAh = 100%
Adapter 0: on-line
Cooling 0: Processor 0 of 7
Cooling 1: LCD 0 of 5

I can confirm the issue is still present. I have tried a number of genuine batteries and they all say the same thing.
